Thanks for supporting reading

By From page A6 | November 20, 2012

In August, Marguerite Montgomery Elementary School received a $500 First Book/Target grant for books for our school library and classrooms. Because of the generosity of this organization, our school was able to purchase 125 books of fiction and nonfiction in English and in Spanish.

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, Hillary Albers from Target and her team came to Montgomery to read some of those books to students. Hillary and her team brought with them not only a great spirit of community support, but a bag full of “goodies” — including another book! — for the classrooms they visited.

We at Montgomery are grateful for this support and appreciate the efforts of the First Book/Target group to encourage reading in our school and community.

Montgomery Elementary School librarian, Davis
